Three Paying Sutton Big Interest

Largo senior Maurice Sutton has a trio of programs showing heavy interest. The 6-foot-10 senior checked in with and lent insight into his situation.

One of the top available talents in the Mid Atlantic region is upset. "I can't standing losing, we just suffered our third loss," Largo (Md.) High senior Maurice Sutton said. "We only lost 3 but that's too many."

Sutton sounds like a youngster who might be his own toughest critic. He does loosen up when asked to grade his senior season performance. "I give myself and A- or a B+," Sutton said. "There's always room for improvement. I worked all summer. I'm not comfortable because I should be more dominant. There's always something that I could do to help my team out."

Programs are beginning to show heavy interest. In particular, a pair of Big East programs and an Atlantic 10 program are cranking it up. "I was talking to (South Florida's) Stan Heath," Sutton said. "I talked to the head coach of Seton Hall on Saturday. They offered me. Coach Heath saw me practice (on Monday). They play Georgetown so he's coming to practice in the morning. Seton Hall came to the game on Friday.

"I think everything is starting to fall in line like it should. A lot of schools are coming out of nowhere. It's a lot of Big East schools. I haven't heard from a lot of people but they're starting to come into picture. I'd have to say Seton Hall and South Florida and LaSalle are coming hard right now."

Sutton was adamant about his academics. "I'm going to qualify."
